Harry Potter’s home at 4 Privet Drive is up for sale – step inside the iconic house

Calling all Harry Potter fans, this muggle house could take you one step closer to Hogwarts…

If you’re still waiting for your letter from Hogwarts, then this could be a dream come true – the Dursley’s home at number 4 Privet Drive is up for sale.

The house that was once inundated with letters from Hogwarts is on the market for £475,000, and it even has the cupboard under the stairs where Harry Potter once slept.

For those who are less familiar with the Harry Potter movie franchise, this iconic house was the set for the Dursley’s home throughout the films.

Harry, played by Daniel Radcliffe, lived there with his estranged Aunt Petunia, Uncle Vernon and his bullying cousin, Dudley, before going to Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry.

The detached family home was selected from hundreds in the fictional village of Little Whinging in 2001, as the set in which Harry, an orphan, was forced to live under the stairs. The real name of the village is in fact, Martins Heron in Bracknell.

But the lucky new owners will be pleased to hear that the interior of the house looks nothing like it did in the films. The dingy wallpaper, carpets and dated furnishings have all been replaced with fresh, modern décor. And there’s plenty of living space, with a sizable garden and three bedrooms.

And no, one of them isn’t a cupboard…

The listing on the Chancellors estate agent website states that it’s ‘situated in a quiet cul-de-sac location’ and has ‘recently undergone complete renovation to an extremely high standard’.

It previously sold for £290,000 in May 2010 but it seems that its Potter credentials have boosted the price somewhat.

An ideal location for commuters, it’s situated just 0.2 miles from Martins Heron railway station.

But if you’re unable to fork out almost half a million to get a step closer to your Harry Potter fantasy, then there’s always the mock up of the house in the Warner Bros Studio Tour in London.
